promise! Our swapped-out version of this Kentucky Fried MESS will save you

more than half the calories and most of the fat. We rock! But we must

confess, this recipe was inspired by one of our faithful subscribers, who

emailed in to tell us that she and her boyfriend make their own version of

these bowls at home. Thanks, Angie!

tender) in a very small amount of water. Drain and then mash squash with

the skim milk and a little salt. Place mashed squash in a medium-sized bowl.

Next, sprinkle corn niblets over your squash. Prepare "chicken" patty

KFC's Famous Bowl, Mashed Potato

Out of Control Bowl!

When we first saw the commercials on TV for KFC's Famous Bowls, several

things crossed our minds. First, we wondered how a brand-new offering could

be called "famous" right out of the gate (a tad presumptuous, no?). Then, our

curiosity turned to sheer DISGUST as we watched the fatty ingredients PILE

up before our horrified eyes. Mashed potatoes, buttery corn, gravy, fried

chicken AND cheese!?! Yikes! Was this some sort of joke? As unfunny as this

monstrosity of a "meal" is, we have to admit it does look pretty delicious

(sorry, it just does). That being said, we're not suggesting you do something

CRAZY like order one of these from the Colonel (eek!). Instead, just throw

together one of HG's KFC-Ya Later Bowls at home. You'll save oodles of

calories and fat grams. Yay!
